With more than 5 million patients treated in ICUs each year and the increasing shortage of qualified ICU intensivists, our telemedicine program offers help to hospitals. Eagle Telemedicine’s offsite ICU intensivists provide expert care at patients’ bedsides, reducing unnecessary transfers, increasing patient volume, and maximizing ROI with incremental DRG reimbursement. Our Tele-ICU program can also help your hospital meet Leapfrog ICU Physician Staffing Standards.
What’s the value of Telemedicine in the ICU?
Tele-ICU companies, like Eagle, are responding to the physician shortage. The lack of critical care specialists, is straining hospitals across the country. An aging patient population, high-tech devices, and new diseases are compounding these challenges. This is certainly true for cardiovascular and pulmonary patients who require life-saving care, including those with COVID-19.
